Teaching Christian Receptive Language

Video Summary

Christian's therapist Tia helps him improve his receptive language skills by working on a simple, one step command: "Give me." They later practice imitation together. While typically developing children learn these skills on their own, many children with autism must be taught them. Throughout the video Christian engages in many distracting sensory seeking behaviors, including grinding his teeth, chewing on toys, looking at his fingers and making high pitched sounds.
